I did that too with some houseplants and they grew much better after that. Maybe I should try it with the plants I grow outside too.Bacalaotropic said:I poured the water from the pwc's around my scrawny tomato plants and. .boom..they literally exploded w beautiful green foliage and lots of tomatoes . There's got to be something good in that water!!
Sunlight would be best but I think an aquarium light that has about 6000k can grow them too. My tank gets indirect sunlight a few hours every day and that is enough to grow the carrot and other plants that are above the tank.Swlws said:With fruit/flower bearing plants, would you need to keep the plant and therefore the tank, in sunlight for the best growth? Why I ask is because I like this idea but not enough to actually risk algae outbreak
You should try it. It grew much faster than potatoes and sweet potatoes that I tried.SM1199 said:This makes me want to stick a carrot in all of my tanks. I accidentally bought a bag of carrots the other day thinking I had run out. Now I have two bags of carrots... Tempted to try this.
I used one of those plastic things that small plants are in (with rock wool) and a suction cup from an old thermometer. I put the bottom of the carrot in it.SM1199 said:
Probably. It grew very quickly too. Buying a carrot that already has some leaves will probably make it grow even faster.JamieLu said:
